Rihanna and A$AP Rocky share first pictures of new son, Riot Rose


Rihanna, 35, and A$AP Rocky, 34, have unveiled the first photos of Riot Rose, their second baby boy, joining big brother RZA, 16 months.  Photographer Diggzy shared the carousel of photos to his Instagram page with the caption: “It’s a FAMILY thing 💪🏽. Welcome to the World Riot Rose 🌹 He also shared additional snaps of the family in his Instagram Stories.

The family of 4 posed for a series of photos, showing Rihanna holding baby Riot while Rocky carries RZA on his shoulders. RZA is shown wearing the newly released FENTY x Puma Avanti, and Rihanna is also photographed carrying her newborn alone as she leans up against a car,  with additional pictures showing the couple playing with Riot on a blanket.

Rihanna revealed her second pregnancy during her headlining Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show performance, and confirmed that she was expecting through a British Vogue cover story featuring her family, which was released days after the performance. Rihanna gave birth to her first son, RZA Athelston Mayers, in May 2022. The couple’s new son’s name appears to be a reference to “RIOT (Rowdy Pipe’n),” a 2023 track from A$AP Rocky.
